Apple reveals Lightning video adapters

HDMI and VGA adapters for new iOS devices allow video mirroring and output

Apple has plonked two new Lightning video adapters in its online store, allowing users of the iPad Mini, iPad 4, iPhone 5 and fifth-generation iPod Touch to output video to an external HDTV, monitor or projector.

The Lightning Digital AV adapter features an HDMI out carrying both HD video and sound. It allows the new generation of iOS devices to either play video on an HDTV in 1080p, or mirror whatever they’re showing onscreen in 720p.

The Lightning VGA adapter does exactly the same, minus the audio part. Both adapters also include a Lightning port of their own, allowing you to hook up another cable.

Both adapters cost £39 at the online Apple store, and will start shipping in two to three weeks’ time.
